Description: Herbivore feeding and methyl jasmonate, a volatile derivative of the stress-eliciting plant hormone, jasmonic acid, induce responses in plants which include the synthesis and emission of volatiles. These induced volatiles can serve to attract or repel herbivores; therefore, they may have potential use in pest management programs. The exotic emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), has killed an estimated 15 million ash trees in southeastern Michigan and Windsor, Ontario, since its discovery in 2002. Accurate delimitation of the infested area and detection of new outlier infestations is critical for regulatory officials who must establish quarantine boundaries and implement eradication and control measures. Trapping and detection techniques would greatly enhance efforts to delineate the distribution of the emerald ash borer and locate new infestations.
